I finished my first round of homeopathic hcg drops and lost 20 lbs in three weeks. I have been on phase 3, maintenance, for four days and am not doing well with making food choices. Although I am not eating sugar, the carbs are sneaking back in little by little. The scale shows a 3 lb gain and I am panicking! I want to go back on the drops and the structure of the VLCD. Do I really need to wait three weeks to start the drops again? I want to start tomorrow
Do you know about the Apple day to take off those 3 pounds?
What type of HCG are you doing? Injections? Sublingual HCG? Homeopathic HCG?
I was taking sublingual homeopathic drops and finished them 5 days ago. I would like to go straight back to the drops and VLCD instead of doing maintenance for three weeks. Can I do this with sublingual homeopathic drops? Yes, I have heard of the apple day and apple and steak day and am possibly considering it. Thanks Misty.
Yes! You can stay on Hhcg until you hit your goal weight without worrying about immunity. You will likely go to an avg weightloss of about 15-20 pounds a month.
Thanks Misty for your quick response! I will start round 2 soon then. Glad I get right back to a strict program. I am still weak at making good food choices and like the feeling of fullness on the hcg.
More than happy to help!
Misty, I read somewhere that you should lose no more than 40# at a time. I'm on Day 16 and have lost 19#, but I need to lose another 70 at least. Do you have to go through the maintenance periodically to reset the hypothalamus?
Again I would have to know what method of HCG you are using and how many rounds you have already completed.
If you are doing sublingual you can stay on as long as you want or can. I always like to take breaks but thats a personal choice you can make for your self.
Wth injections you do need to stop at 40 in one round.
Thanks Misty...I'm on my first round of the drops. My daughter is getting married in less than two weeks, so am planning to stop drops for two days and try to stay as legal as I can, then probably go back on the drops awhile longer.
Hey Misty, you seems to know a lot about the drops.. I just heard of them for the first time in my life about a month ago, and ordered HCG Fusion 30 homneopatic (2 bottles because all the reviews says they dont last 30 days) I started 18 days ago at at 143lbs (71,5kg) and I am in 132 (66 kgs) I reached a plateau, it has been 3 days with 66 kgs. I started this morning the apple day.. so far everything is ok. Im super happy but I wish I could have some advice because i am a newby and I can't find all the info I need., for instance after my drops I dont know much about manteinance etc.
I'll be thankful if you could guide me a little.
I am piggybacking off someone elses similar question again...I hate to keep bugging you, but I am desperate for a response! Again, here is my problem:
I had crackers, hummus, cheese, olives and wine within 2 hours of starting my phase 3 after the 72 hour period! How stupid!!! I had lost 32 lbs on Hhcg drops in 45 days. So Iam afraid I messed up the resetting part already! I still have some drops left...maybe a coule days worth. I should have just used all my drops up before starting phase 3, but thought I had to stop after 45 days. Can I just try to avoid sugars and starches again today, (alhtough my husband and kids want to go to a Japanese steakhouse to celebrate my bday tonight, so I may end up getting some sugar in the sauce the restaurant uses...but I'll try to limit it.) and try to keep my food intake as low cal as I can, and then just restart my drops (with the 500 calorie regimen) tomorrow. I would like to just finish the drops and then start maintenace again? If I can do that---that would be great! I do not want to have to re-load since it will have only been less than 48 hours if I start tomorrow morning...I actually may even try to order more drops so that I can lose the remaining 15 lbs that would get me to my goal before starting phase 3...please help me! You are a fountain of wisdom! I am soooo glad I found this site...I only wish I'd found it yesterday!!!!
THX! I will keep checking for your reply!

Sorry for the delay in response!
First, if your HCG vendors reviews say that it doesnt do what it should then thats a bad sign. That could mean that the drops arent potent enough. So immediately that sent up a red flag to me.
Second, a plateau could be because of bad HCG ( see above ) or you may be close to your goal weight. Those last 20 pounds tend to be very difficult, but not impossible. You dont have to resort to an apple day but if it helps, why not. Drinking Green Tea with Senna before bed helps too.
Third, if it has been many years since you have been under this weight you are plateauing then that could be a reason too.
As alwasy INCREASE water consumption and press on!
Im so sorry you have had to wait. I try to check this sight as often as I can but then sometimes the days just get away from you.
I think I have answered this already in another thread right?
Yes you can get back on the drops and restart just depends how long youve been off.
Its the yoyo weight shifts that affects and inhibits the resetting process. I honestly dont know if thats a problem now. But all is not lost. Once you go into maintenance just stay on it and dont go up or down more than 2 pounds.
Hi I was wondering what brand of HCG drops did you use and do they carry it at GNC or Super supplements?
I sell HCG Sublingual Drops through my online store. You can check out the site listed below.
Hope this helps!
Misty, you may have answered this question in a previous post.... so forgive me, please.
I will be finishing my first 45 day round in two weeks. I am only 1/2 way through my weight loss goal. I will have about 30 more pounds to lose. I am using the hcg spray. When I finish the first 45 days I understand I can continue without having to worry about immunity because I am using the spray; but, do I do the 2 load days before beginning again? Or do I just continue right into the 46th day without stopping?
No you do not need to stop. Just continue on!
Hi Misti, I am trying to find out if it would be ok if I started my 4th round of HCG with the homeopathic drops so soon? I just finished my 3rd round Sept.11th and have been on maintaince about 2 weeks now. I read I have to wait 8 weeks to re-start. But I'm anxious to get this fat off!
Thank you sooo much!!!
Hi there Happy!
When you take the drops you do not need to take breaks at all. I have had clients on the regular drops and on the homeopathic drops remain on them for months at a time because of large amounts of weight they needed to lose.
When you use the drops you do not run the risk of immunity you do with the injections.
Hope this helps!
Misty, somewhere I read if you're doing the drops longer than a 28-day round, you should skip the drops one day every week. It seems their explanation was that it helps the drops work better because you don't develop an immunity. Just wondering if you've ever heard that? Do we need to do that, from what you know? Thanks!

That's because there IS no hCG in the drops. You're buying sterile (you hope) water for the price of silver.
Please, folk - get the Real Stuff. You're putting a huge stress on your body in P2 VLCD.
With hCG, you'll go into 'pregnancy mode', have reduced hunger cravings, feel better, pull almost exclusively from fat stores, and generally be more able to stick with the diet. You'll need to follow the protocol much more closely, including taking P3 breaks to avoid developing a tolerance for the microdoses we use (a pregnant woman can produce in a single afternoon 10 times what we use in 40 days)
Without hCG, your body goes into 'starvation mode' and will consume your internal organs along with all your other tissues to find fuel for your body. A VLCD diet will still result in weight loss, but has much greater health risks and a bad long term <email> .
Also, talk to a licensed doctor (not a naturapath or whatever) about the effects of a long-term starvation diet.
That Can Kill You.
I'm sorry, I just had to respond to your comment about the HCG drops.
I just don't agree with the way you come across, for those people that are searching answers about the whole protocol, I think your assumtions are very bold and I'm not sure why your views are so but we are all entitled to our own opinion. So I want to shout out to all those reading this, there are a lot of scams out there, like there is with anything but naturapaths and homeopathics are very much real and very knowledgable people. They go to the cause rather than the symptom..no band-aids there. But that's besides the point...
I truely believe that your mistaken about the drops being a plasebo. They work great and if they didn't I would be hungry, if I were in starvation mode. I have not lost any muscle mass at all either...
Anyway! I don't want to cause any problems just wanted to shout-out to those searching! I'm a firm believer in the HCG homeopathic protocol, and have lost 65+ pds. so far!!
I appreciate your feedback, but I'd like to point out the the entire premise of homeopathy >is< the treatment of symptoms.
The fundamental premise of homeopathy is: "Like cures like"; meaning actual homeopathy is to introduce a dilute antagonist / toxin to the body that would normally generate the same symptoms you are trying to treat, to encourage a disproportionate bodily response.
That's one of the several reasons 'homeopathic' hCG is just a scam - it's not even actual homeopathy. It's just infinite dilution of a harmless molecule that everybody's bodies can freely and naturally metabolize without harm. Heck, we use microgram quantities, and a woman naturally produces hundreds of thousands of times that amount in a single afternoon when pregnant.
Additionally, hCG breaks down in hours at room temperature. Your bottle was worthless long before it got shipped to you. Even if water had a 'memory', it wouldn't remember hCG - just it's breakdown components.
Buy the real stuff.
I truly do appreciate your enthusiasm to inform. You are always very knowledgeable and thorough.
What I am sure you already understand is that when it comes to HCG there are opinions all over the board.
I accept as I am sure many of us do that you dont believe in the effects of Homeopathic HCG. Many people believe the whole HCG Protocol is a scam also. We all know what we know and we stand by what we stand by. Lets move on now.
This is a forum for support and answers. Feel free to NOT contribute on questions regarding homeopathic HCG. We have all worked very hard to not allow this forum to become a place of division and endless ridicule over what methods are selected as I have seen on MANY other forums. Many other forums get downright nasty over whether you choose to use injections vs drops.
Here me in this, I will not allow that to happen here.
Please feel free to continue here. We all gain so much from your insights. Lets just keep the homeopathy bashing out of here alright?
Thank you so much,
I purchased my drops from hcgultradiet.com and it came with b-12 drops also. My first question is the # of drops they say 25 3x day and most of the comments I see here say 12-15. Also the amount of time to hold it under your tongue says 2 minutes and I have also read some people say 10 minutes. I try to keep it under as long as I can but I get so much saliva in my mouth and I'm worried I'm swallowing to early.
Many formulas are different. My formula is one of the originals so the dosage I reccomend to my clients is 10 drops 3 times a day, hold under your tounge 10 min.
The dosages are different for almost every distributor though.
Hey Misty~~I have enjoyed reading the questions and answers on your forum. I'm just beginning my 3rd 21 day round using the homeopathic drops and have lost 30 lbs so far with about 30 to go. Thanks for all the information. Annora
